I really do have a full understanding of the range of Pigpen's talents short of having seen him perform which may very well be to my detriment.I'm not expecting Sinatra,but consistently being off key,out of time and muffing the words are not sought after qualities in a singer.Since all I have is a taped legacy I generally find his vocal performances lacking,that's not to say I don't enjoy many of the songs he sang on.I have absolutely no qualms with a long,raunchy Lovelight rife with obscenity,I draw the line when he get's misogynistic.

While I can't say I have a lot of respect for what he represented or his skill set I certainly respect anyone's right to like or dislike whatever they chose.

I was kidding with WT and really hoped you wouldn't feel compelled to join in this,but I appreciate that you would take some time to weigh in with some words of wisdom.

One quick comment: he owned us so much that we didn't notice his flaws--or rather, we LIKED them! Maybe that doesn't speak highly of us. I dunno. But it does speak to his presence.
